She prefers to spend more time with herself than with her family because of this she has a weak relationship with her parents.
Lennie seems to be very strong, but in reality he is the weakest character in the novel “Of Mice And Men”, because of the lack of his mentality ability and the missing characteristic to think for himself and make his own decisions. The strong characters are attacking the weaker characters in this book, and the Forstner 3 weaker are attacking the weakest. Are good example of this would be when Carlson compels Candy to let him shoot his dog against his will. “I'll put the old devil out of his misery now,” (Steinbeck, 47). Or when crooks teased Lennie “jus' s'pose he don't come back,” (Steinbeck, 72).
Lennie obviously also finds her pretty as he mentions twice ‘she’s purty.’ Candy describes her giving Slim and Carlson ‘the eye’ which suggests she openly flirts with them. 4) Steinbeck describes Slims authority with the phrase, ‘all talk stopped when he spoke,’ and ‘his authority was so great that his word was taken on any subject.’ In his description of Slim, Steinbeck describes no negatives about the man, suggesting that he is both strong-minded and almost faultless in his life. 5) In this scene, almost as soon as Lennie and George arrive they are met by Curley, a fierce person that put them on edge almost immediately. This seems to suggest that the ranch has an ‘every man for himself ’ type of feel to it and that George and Lennie will have to be careful whilst they are at the

Such words as “good, solid furniture of the period” “desert plates, champagne glasses” “port glasses are already on the table” suggest this. They suggest this because only a family of such privilege would have the money to afford these possessions. Speech is another method of producing a sense of prosperity. The use of speech certainly helps the audience understand how the higher class people in the Edwardian age would speak. Words used such as “moonshine” “by jingo” and absolutely first-class” imply that they are a polite and posh family.
His intenstions are correct but his delivery of expression is wrong. Jane has tried to resolve the conflicts prevailing in the office, but her efforts are all in vain.

Main Issues Andy Zimmerman is a bright star performer, but his ways with his colleagues are not congenial.

As the novel goes on we see that Crooks accepts things the way they overall are. Crooks doesn’t talk to the other men and they don’t talk to him. This causes the greatest amount of loneliness in Crooks out of all the characters. When Crooks states “I tell ya a guy get to lonely an he gets sick” ( Steinbeck; 73). This quote shows that rejection can cause most people to become crazy, as it did to Crooks.
She asks him whether he’d shoot a lady. He never actually says he would or wouldn’t, he just says “I would hate to have to” (190). The grandmother considers being a lady moral and the Misfit’s answer proves that he doesn’t have the same morals as she does. She fiercely calls him a “good” man, hoping he wouldn’t deny it. Her use of “good” is bias since she states he is not common.
It shows his control and how he exerts his authority over women and commands them. This shows his masculinity, which is made known when he uses the imperative, “never”. He says the words, “your mouth” which shows he never doubts his loyalty to his family and it is as if he is saying the warning but it doesn’t relate to him as he is more powerful. However, it is ironic
